We hate to face it, but winter is just around the corner. The leaves are falling, and the temperatures are quickly starting to cool. Now is the perfect time to prepare yourself for the long winter months ahead. One item that should be on your pre-winter checklist is checking your insulation around your home. Your insulation not only keeps you warm and comfortable through the long winter months, but also protects your home from unwanted pests who are also trying to escape the cold.
Benefits of Insulation and Where to Check
People often wait too long before considering their insulation. This can lead to some miserably cold winter days, which is why this is the perfect time of year to deal with any insulation issues. Dealing with any issues now will save you money by ensuring that your home heating is working as efficiently as possible. When you have poor insulation, your system has to work harder because cold air is making its way into your home. When your system has to work harder, it ends up costing you more through your monthly heating bill. The most common areas are your attic, your walls, and your flooring. Cold air can find its way into your home through these areas. Poor insulation will also let your heat out. Especially with flooring, this air can create more moisture within your home which can increase your risk of mold and other issues.
